Cover: Double-headed 15-inch gauge power at the Perrygrove Railway with 0-6-2 ‘Anne’, built in 2004, leading the line’s first loco, 0-6-0 ‘Spirit of Adventure’ built in 1994. Both are recognisable products of the Exmoor Steam Railway, and in this issue James Waite begins an exclusive two-part feature on this prolific loco builder, with full access provided by the Stirland family.
